Colorful market day of Nam Dan
Ngày đăng : 11/19/2012
The northern district of Nam Dan is not only interesting for its ancient rock field but also for its colorful market day, which is a flurry of activity every Saturday morning.
It is located in Xin Man commune, Ha Giang Province and visitors are recommended to visit this beautiful area at least once. They can reach the area by using the road that goes through Deo Gio hill and leads to the beautiful Xin Man ladder rice field.
Market day attracts not only minority people of H’Mong and Dao but also the Kinh, the biggest ethnic group in Vietnam to purchase goods.
At the market, visitors can find local agricultural products and some consumer goods imported from China. If they are lucky, visitors can find some rare herbal goods that minority people locate in the pristine forest nearby.
The market also serves hot breakfast and lunch featuring a tasty noodle and pork dish. Note the market only takes place on Saturday mornings.
